I was sitting in my hot tub this morning and looked up on my roof and
couldn't believe it but I saw a Phainopepla. Black bird about 8
inches long with very noticeable crest. I recognized it because I had seen
them in March in Tucson. According to Sibley we are a little north of their
range. I live on Pine Mountain in Willits at 2000ft - mixture of oak, fir,
madrone.
